The black model in the HELIX range is completely fitted out, and comes with an black aluminium action. With wooden stock and driven hunt sights. Available in wood-classes 2 to 10.
Real straight-pull: truly linear and super-fast action. Short way thanks to the 1:2 transmission.
Tool-less barrel- and calibre exchange: The Helix with its uniquely simple take-down system has not only been developed for hunting, but also for the way there.
The safety system of the helix is whole: The safety of the shooter is guaranteed by a solid bolt head with six locking slugs and the closed system.
The i-Sight system offers the needs-orientated and individual configuration of the Helix’s’ open sights. As a Standard, the i-Sight bead is mounted in the front of the two barrel boreholes, it can, however, be easily switched to the rear if the muzzle thread is needed. Furthermore the front and rear sight can be detached completely, to use an over-barrel suppressor for example.
The Helix is equipped with a hand-cocking system: Only when needed the system is cocked – and as easily, with minimal sound, de-cocked if no shot has been fired.
The direct trigger of the Helix is adjustable from approx. 900 to 1.900 grams, the optional, riffled TAR-GT trigger from 500 to 1.500 grams.
A milled Picatinny rail as mount basis: the cope can be mounted easily and repeatable.
Helix magazines are made from sheet steel and protected against scratching by a polymer layer on the gripping piece. Be it a basic magazine (3-round) or the 5-round variant, it is perfect for driven hunts. Optionally, the aluminium magazine can be engraved in the Merkel factory.
